chief white house correspondent ed henry broke the story and he is at the white house with our report. >> president obama comfortably today with chairman michael bennet..@ just moments after they wrapped up a dramatic closed-door meeting with 15 senate democrats facing the voters in 2014. those murderous anger over obamacare will knock them out of offfce. one source familiar with the meeting told fox that it was pent-up frustration about the rollout. it is terrible politics for everyone right noww at a democratic source. this was a chance for the president to let a little pressure out. after days of republican piling on. >> people feel deceived, they are very upset. and they should be. not only with the law itself, the with the way the

administration has basically brushed their concerns aside. reporter: in a sign of the intensity of the situation, it was a two-hour meeting in the president was joined by vice president biden and chief of staff benefit don't know and jeffrey sine who assured the skeptical senators that the health care website will be fixed by the end of november. and saying it's absolutely unacceptable in this day and age that the administration can't deliver on the promises it made to all americans because of technical problems with the website. we should be appreciating the critical benefits of the affordable care act, but there is an understandable crisis in confidence because the administration has yet to get it off the ground. >> he doesn't return my calls all the time. but i think they really want to hear from us because we are on
7:04 pm
the ground, as we know, in our community. i have delivered that frustration on a regglar basis to the white house. reporter: finger from democrats may explain why the white house left the meeting of the president's public schedule for the day. it was only after senator started lashing out with press releases that word had leaked out. senator udall said that the president needs to push back the enrollment period beyond 2014, march, and putting new safeguards and for online privacy. and he said he also told the president there for the affordable care act to succeed, consumers need to be confident that their personal information is secure and we need to do everything in our power to try to protect the online marketplace from hackers and cyberattacks. reporter: a democratic source says that some senators floated the idea of a delay of up to one year for enrollment and this would be a major change in the
7:05 pm
president did not agree. i'm told the senators felt it was a constructive meeting and the question is whether the white house compromises and ways implementation by few months. >> it's interesting how those white house meetings always positive. while the president was trying to calm the nerves of the democratic senators today, they have returned the disastrous rollout of obamacare. just when we assume this would be another dole senate finance hearing on yet another scandal that they would stonewall, secretary kathleen sebelius admitted it might be possible that a convicted felon could collect the personal information of health care consumers while acting as the obamacare navigators.
7:06 pm
>> there is no federal requirement for navigators undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal information from individuals that they hoped to sign up for an and the affordable care act spirit statement that is true, states could add an additional background check and other features and it is not part of the federal requirement. lou: secretary kathleen sebelius acknowledging that the early enrollment figures for obamacare which is scheduled to be released next week, will be very low. fox is reporting a relatively new provision in obamacare opening up the medicaid program to even more fraud. that according to a new medicaid director which is raising concerns about section 2202 of the four well-kept and he says that that section expands hospital use of the honor system when caring for the uninsured who claim that they fall into

7:12 pm
>> election day has concluded and in many ways it was a battle, it seems, for the future of the republican party. establishment republicans trying to crush the tea party in some races and in some cases losing their way. >> chris christie easily won reelection in new jersey, setting the stage for a run in 2016, but he seemed to be running morgans the tea party than his democratic opponent, in part because it created an effective appeal to liberal voters in new jersey. in virginia, ken cuccinelli lost only three points when polls once had him losing by double digits. the gop establishment worked hard to push away the tea party and incredibly allow and obama bumbler to build a libertarian
7:13 pm
tennessee that took twice as many votes as the margin of victory. there is a lot to be learned from the gubernatorial races in virginia and new jersey and one lesson certainly is the gop leadership is committed to big business and establishment candidate as they are with the conservative candidates. no better example than in the first congressional district in alabama. committing an enormous amount of resources to a i like bradley burns over dion. can the republican party win next year without including libertarians and the tea party? a lot of public initiatives on the ballot last night as well. folks in colorado can smoke pot, but the rocky mountain high will be taxed at 25% and a split
7:14 pm
decision and the moral of the secession movement is that at first you don't succeed, try again. and likely to be reduced, voters rejecting a 200 million-dollar renovation. you can also smoke pot in portland, maine. and it is a legal recreational activity. and las vegas casinos, in some cases a lack of moderation we will see what both partiessmake of that and whether there is room for a third view next year and in 2016. >> joining us now to take up the implications for both parties, we are joined by julie burzynski and a "new york post" columnist. good to have you both with us.
7:15 pm
let's start with you, a remarkable win for governor chris christie. >> it becomes even more amazing, chris christie who everyone thinks is a good moderate -- he could be both, right? lou: he called himself a conservative. >> but he got 92% of the tea party vote in the polls and that is amazing. >> particularly with some of the things that he said about the tea party. >> a lot of the democratic core constituents and many of them won by 59-point.
7:16 pm
lou: there was a 19-point increase as well. >> this is cutting across all the of the lines and to me, this is heartening that a republican candidate can cross over that way and we have a lot of voters who simply want answers to their problems. lou: what we watched in virginia was a dramatic demonstration of powerful establishment politics on the democratic side and if not the principal fundraiser, he just barely got through against the tea party candidate, but the republican party was basically trying to kill by strangling and suffocating him from lack of money. >> if you ask these people, they will say they will be up. >> we all read the polls.
7:17 pm
so in some cases i would say that terry mcauliffe was a flawed candidate. these are not rockstar candidates and i think even bob mcdonnell, the republican governor, so what is that saying in the struggle for the party? >> get his approval ratings are so down. that is amazing. lou: up to one. i disagree. i think that both candidates could think that both candidates convinced our candidates. but they chose unfortunate paths in their candidacy. can kuchen away brought all oo the warmth and energy to his candidacy and frankly i interviewed him and i talked with him and this is a man who
7:18 pm
is dynamic and a committed public servant and my goodness, and the remaining weeks of the campaign he was sluggish and he looked like he had been beaten to a pulp. it was a strange performance by both candidates. >> don't forget the amount of money that mcauliffe had for the advantage. especially coming down the stretch. >> they knew that they were doing this by not giving him more support. >> i think the problems with obamacare clearly helped him in the last few days close that gap that he had. but i would make another argument as well. and it shows that the mainstream media covering the obamacare disaster, i don't think there was any hiding from it. imagine if the mainstream media have covered a lot of the other
7:19 pm
obama disasters like benghazi or the irs scandal, along the way, does the whole job issue. in these races would've come out very differently as well. >> the problem with his campaign was operating in the state of new jersey and he went out there and spoke to the voters and was defined as things like this. >> the usual war on women's strategy. to which the republicans don't have a counterstrategy. >> they do, it's all chris christie, he ran against the all woman ticket in the history of this nation. >> there is no attack on him on the war on women's and it wasn't
7:20 pm
overwhelming attack of absurdity. but unless an attack. and i think we have these events when you talk about media that israel. one is how does can kuchen away recover when the tea party embraces the shutdown of government in the weeks leading up to the election. that was devastating, i believe. and with obamacare a train wreck versus this. >> while obamacare, let's posit for a moment, -- of course you don't. [laughter] lou: at the monument president obama's leadership.
7:21 pm
>> northern virginia was part of the process, and so there you go. >> there was a problem and the fact is he lost. >> i think that obamacare is going to be the problem going forward. and it's not likely to be another showdown between now and the next election. but obamacare is with us. lou: thank you both. up next, vladimir putin apparently having second thoughts about his association with syrian dictator bashar al-assad. we have that and much morr with general jack keane coming up next.

75 million courtesy of the secretary of state carries today . what is your assessment of what the united states policy is and its goals? >> every secretary for the last 50 years is try to broker some kind of peace treaty with the palestinians and israelis. we have failure. i think we are here, what took place here, frankly, is the israelis and palestinians both made concessions as a condition for beginning the peace talks and the palestinians began to push back on new settlement. they were not part of the concessions. they bellyaches quite a bit. low and behold they got a concession out of the united states. i do not think strategy why is it makes much sense because what you are trying to do is get these people talking to each other, the israelis and palestinians and not frustrate one side against the other. lou: no one could seemingly been more frustrated, the focus

remains an do is concerned that the obama administration is not focused on iran. give us your perspective on what will likely transpire. >> clearly iran is the number one strategic enemy in the region, and certainly is ours. they have never given up on regional domination, and that is why they have had a state-sponsoree terrorist campaign against us and other countries in the region for 30 years. they're moving toward a nuclear weapon. we will have some discussion with them. they always look at the diplomacy and negotiations is simply this, one step back and two steps forward. that has been the pattern for 15 years. they watched the north koreans do it much to their success in acquiring nuclear weapons. i think ms. and now who is really very much concerned
